Certificate in the Foundations of Therapeutic Play Skills
The Foundations in Therapeutic Play Skills course is offered in a blended format (on-line live or in-room) and is intended for practitioners who work therapeutically with children in a variety of settings and for those who would like to meet with children in a developmentally sensitive way. The foundational focus includes an introduction to the concepts of directiveness and consciousness in therapeutic play activities in addition to training in how to conceptualize a child client. Non-directive therapeutic play skills are introduced. Participants learn about play-based and expressive interventions and are invited to partake in experiential activities using miniatures, art materials and puppets. Video case examples assist in conceptualizing the play process.
The foundations certificate may be used towards the first day of the full Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills for the designation of Therapeutic Play Practitioner (TPP) for those practitioners interested in continuing beyond this course.
